Description

An introduction to the issue of history and ethics. Designed to provoke discussion, the book asks whether a knowledge and understanding of the past is a good thing to have and if so, why. In the context of postmodern times, the text suggests that the goal of "learning lessons from the past" is actually learning lessons from stories written by historians and others. If the past as history has no foundation, can anything ethical be gained from history? This text seeks to present liberating challenges to history and ethics, proposing that we have reached an emancipatory moment which is well beyond the "end of history".
